When it comes to designing your living space, one of the most important pieces to consider is the TV unit. The TV unit, also known as an entertainment unit, not only holds your television but can also serve as a centrepiece for your living room.
However, with so many options available on the market, choosing the best TV unit for your living space can be overwhelming. So, we’ve pulled together 8 tips to help you choose the best TV unit for your living space.
1. Consider the size of your TV
The size of your TV is one of the most important factors to consider when choosing a TV unit. The TV unit should be able to accommodate your TV size without overpowering the room. A TV unit that is too small will make your TV look awkward and out of place, while a TV unit that is too large can dominate the room and make it look cluttered.
2. Measure your living space
Before buying a TV unit, measure your living space to determine the amount of space you have available. A TV unit that is too large for your living space can make it feel cramped, while a TV unit that is too small can look awkward and out of place. Make sure to measure the width, height, and depth of the area where you want to place your TV unit.
3. Consider the style of your living space
When choosing a TV unit, consider the style of your living space. You want to choose a TV unit that complements the existing decor of your living room. If your living room has a mid century style, choose a TV unit which follows the same style, such as a walnut or black tv unit from our Manhattan mid century furniture collection. If your living room has a hamptons style, choose a TV unit with a coastal design such as our Bronte Oak TV Unit.
4. Decide on the placement of the TV unit
Another factor to consider when choosing a TV unit is the placement of the unit. Do you want the TV unit to be the focal point of the room or do you want it to blend in with the existing decor? If you want the TV unit to be the focal point of the room, choose a TV unit with a bold design such as our Catalina TV Unit. If you want the TV unit to blend in with the existing decor, choose a TV unit with a more subdued design such as our Cooge TV Unit.
5. Consider storage options
In addition to holding your TV, a TV unit can also provide storage for other items such as consoles, books, and games. When choosing a TV unit, consider the storage options that are available. Do you need open shelves or do you prefer cabinets with doors such as our Ollie TV Unit? Do you need space for a gaming console or other electronics? Make sure the TV unit you choose has enough storage to meet your needs.
6. Think about the height of the TV unit
The height of the TV unit is another important factor to consider. The TV unit should be at eye level when you are seated to ensure a comfortable viewing experience. If the TV unit is too high or too low, it can strain your neck and cause discomfort. Make sure to choose a TV unit with the right height for your seating arrangement.
7. Consider the material of the TV unit
TV units come in a variety of materials including wood, metal, and glass. When choosing a TV unit, consider the material that will work best for your living space. A wooden TV unit can add warmth and texture to your living room, such as our Jensen TV Unit. While a metal or darker wood TV unit can add an industrial look, such as our Kingston TV Unit.
Finally, consider your budget when choosing a TV unit. We offer TV units within a range in price from a hundred dollars to several hundred dollars. Determine how much you are willing to spend and look for TV units that fall within your budget. For those price conscious, our Markus Small TV Unit is a great pick.
